CFTE Fintech Founders Special Episode | Fintech and Talent – The Benefits of Diversity
March 17, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm
Join us for our 12th episode of Fintech Founders to hear form these exceptional female role models and influential spokespersons in the global Fintech industry.
Only 1.5% of global Fintech firms are founded solely by women, and receive just 1% of total Fintech funding. But the Fintech sector has received nearly $200Bn in VC investments in the past 10 years. Why is there a gap?
Bringing diversity into Fintech is more than just another initiative, it is a global priority and necessity.
Having more women in Fintech is important to bring diversity to the industry and bring about gender parity, but it is also important to spark creativity and innovation in companies, ultimately benefiting the economy as a whole.
So the question we ask today is, how can we bring about this change knowing that we have struggled to do so since the industry was born? What can really change the face of Fintech?
To answer these quintessential questions, CFTE is honoured to present the special edition of Fintech Founders Series. An episode that will feature Tram Anh Nguyen, Co-Founder of CFTE, Marieke Flament, CEO at NEAR Foundation, Bianca Lopes, Co-Founder of Talle, Ronit Ghose, Global Head of Fintech & Digital at Citi Global Insights, and Gaurav Dhar, the CEO of Marshal Equipment & Trading Co. Llc & MENA Fintech Association Board Member.
